The identity of Nimrod with the constellation Orion is not to be rejected. We have only to bring the ancient Babylonian Mysteries to bear on the whole system of Rome, and then it will be seen how immensely the one has borrowed from the other.
He “illumines all, delights all, whence all proceeded; that by which they live when born, and that to which all must return” Veda. Though modern Hinduism recognises millions of gods, yet the Babiloniaas sacred books show that originally it had been far otherwise. Now we find such language applied to Brahm, the one supreme God, as cannot be accounted for, except on the supposition that Brahm had the very same meaning as the Hebrew Rahm.
Rahm in Hebrew signifies “The merciful or compassionate one. We think it must be painful to any Christian mind, and repugnant to Christian feeling, to look at this figure. The statement of Bunsen is to the effect that the religious system of Egypt was derived from Asia, and “the primitive empire alexande Babel.
In prosecuting such alexanver inquiry there are considerable difficulties to be overcome; for, as in geology, it is impossible at all points to reach the deep, underlying strata of the earth’s surface, so it is not to be expected that in any one country we should find a complete and connected account of the system established in that country. Now we find statements in their sacred books which prove that once a very different doctrine must have been taught.
Layard regards the circle in that figure as signifying “Time without bounds.
Out of the middle of this figure is proceeding the Holy Ghost in the form of a dove. In the “Institutes of Menu,” he is characterised as “He whom the mind alone can perceive; whose essence eludes the external organs, who has no visible parts, who exists from eternity Both Bunsen and Layard in their researches have come to substantially the same result. Ods, not merely had the ancient Hindoos exalted ideas of the natural perfections of God, but there is evidence that they were well aware bxbilonias the gracious character of God, as revealed in His dealings with a lost and guilty world.
Hence, from Dheva or Theva”The Good,” naturally comes the Sanscrit, Devaor, without the digamma, as it frequently is, Deo”God,” the Latin, Deusand the Greek, Theosthe digamma in the original Thevo-s being also dropped, as novus in Latin is neos in Greek.

We beg to speak of it with due reverence. Back Table of Contents Forward moza butterfly. The other is the head of an old man, surmounted by a triangle. In Japan, the Buddhists worship their great divinity, Buddha, with three heads, in the very same form, under the name of “San Pao Fuh. The ancient Icelandic mythology calls him “the Author of every thing that existeth, the eternal, the living, and awful Being; the searcher into concealed things, the Being that never changeth.
Philologos Religious Online Books Philologos. The Egyptians also used the triangle as a symbol of their “triform divinity. Now, as the language of Jeremiah, already quoted, would indicate that Babylon was the primal source from which all these systems of idolatry flowed, so the deductions of the most learned historians, on mere historical grounds have led to the same conclusion.
From Zonaras we find that the concurrent testimony of the ancient authors he had consulted was to this effect; for, speaking of arithmetic and astronomy, he says: Most other nations did the same.
All who have paid the least attention to the literature of Greece, Egypt, Phoenicia, or Rome are aware of the place which the “Mysteries” occupied in these countries, and that, whatever circumstantial diversities there might be, in all essential respects these “Mysteries” in the different countries were the same.
Thus, we find the God Crishna, in one of the Hindoo sacred books, when asserting his high dignity as a divinity and his identity with the Supreme, using the following words: Here, then, we find that Brahm is just the same as “Er-Rahman,” “The all-merciful one,”–a title applied by the Turks to the Most High, and that the Hindoos, notwithstanding their deep religious degradation nowhad once known that “the most holy, most high God,” is also “The God of Mercy,” in other words, that he is “a just God and a Saviour.
If the angel here referred to had not been God, Jacob could never have invoked him as on an equality with God. Zero, in this sense, had evidently come from the Chaldee, zer”to encompass,” from which, also, no doubt, was derived the Babylonian name for a great cycle of time, called a ” saros.
The Two Babylons: Trinity in Unity
But there is reason to believe that “Deva” has a much alexandfr honourable origin, and that it really came originally from the Chaldee, Thav”good,” which is also legitimately pronounced Thevand in the emphatic form is Theva or Thevo”The Good. The Papacy has in some of its churches, as, for instance, in the monastery of the so-called Trinitarians of Madrid, an image of the Triune God, with three heads on one body.
In both cases such a comparison is most degrading to the King Eternal, and is fitted utterly to pervert the uislop of those who contemplate it, as if there was or could be any similitude between such a figure and Him who hath said, “To whom will ye liken God, and what likeness will ye compare unto Him? This view of the matter gives an emphasis to the saying of our Lord Matt While overlaid with idolatry, the recognition of a Trinity was universal in all the ancient nations of the world, proving how deep-rooted in apexander human race was the primeval doctrine on this subject, which comes out so distinctly in Genesis.
The ancient Babylonians, just as the modern Romans, recognised in words the unity of the Godhead; and, while worshipping innumerable minor deities, as possessed of certain influence on human affairs, they distinctly acknowledged that there was ONE infinite and almighty Creator, supreme over all.
It obtained the epithet of perfectand was believed to be the most ancient of religious systems, having preceded that of the Egyptians.
